IMPORTANT NOTE: STRICTLY 8 ADULTS MAXIMUM - this is to rule out bookings from large non-family groups (folks coming to the area to party!). I have had to remove guests in the past, police involved, etc and have measures in place to prevent this occurring again so please do not try to book unless you are the right type of guest.
However we do encourage slightly larger family groups to be accommodated, if required two children could sleep on the corner sofa / an air/camp bed can be provided to sleep in up to a maximum of 10 persons in total but the maximum number of adults allowed in the house is strictly 8. This is a house rule. A travel cot can also be provided on request. Please contact me with your requirements.
